Dorniden, Laskowske Set New School Records
The Gopher women’s track & field team enjoyed an outstanding meet at the Iowa State Classic on Saturday as two school record fell.

“We had such a great day, it’s hard to put one performance above another,” said Golden Gopher head coach Matt Bingle. “It was a great overall team effort over the weekend.”

Heather Dorniden bettered the school record in winning the mile run with an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 4 minutes, 38.80 seconds. Dorniden now owns the Minnesota records in the 400 meters, 800 meters and the mile, in addition to several relays.

Amy Laskowske ran a personal best by over 30 seconds in placing third in the 5,000-meter run in a record time of 16:26.51. Laskowske jumped to the top of the list after clocking the 10th-best time in school history last season.

The Gopher sprinters continued to rewrite the Minnesota top-10 lists. Kylie Peterson finished fourth in the 60-meter dash in 7.58 seconds, the fifth-best time in school history, while Nyoka Giles tied the No. 6 time in Gopher history with her sixth-place showing in a time of 7.60 seconds. Adrienne Thomas placed sixth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 55.41 seconds, the fourth-best time on the Gophers’ top-10 list.
